As we close out 2011, efforts undertaken by the IAFF have made a difference to so many affiliates who are facing unprecedented political attacks.

We plan to continue to fight back in 2012 and will prepare our affiliate leaders with the resources they need to combat the attacks that are being waged against workers’ rights across the country.

The IAFF will conduct its annual Affiliate Leadership Training Summit (ALTS), a two-day Conference that helps union leaders become more effective in their roles and learn strategic steps for fighting against political attacks. The Conference is January 24-26 and will be held in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. You can find more information about the Conference here. You can register here.

The IAFF will also sponsor the Ernest A. “Buddy” Mass Human Relations Conference, designed to build solidarity among brother and sister fire fighters. It promotes strategies and tools that enhance the quality of life for all of our members. Our Human Relations Conference is January 22-24 and will also be held in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, prior to the Affiliate Leadership Training Summit.
